i can't speak to whether or not the studio version of Estimated or Black Peter is better than any live version, for two very simple reasons:

1) i haven't listened to every live version of those songs (and likely never will)
2) i haven't listened to the studio versions to those two songs in probably close to 25 years

HOWEVER, i will say that of the live versions of Box of Rain that i've heard, none come even remotely close to the studio version, and i am thinking particularly of Hunter's version on Jack O' Roses

Having said all that, it's two different experiences: live & studio; you either like studio stuff or you like live stuff; and that's all i'll say about that

Thanks - I should have made it clear, as you did, that in no way have I heard all versions of any song. If you tried to box me into a "studio" or "live" camp, I'd definitely be in the live camp, so I'm not sure it's black & white but I hear your point. What do they say - the exception proves the rule?

I'll have to check out the Hunter version you mentioned.
